Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Seven flashes of thoughts is a music composition for symphonic orchestra. The music starts with "Vivo energico" introduction, like a wind blowing that pick up everything it bumps into.

    Than, a "senza misura - molto liberamente" suggests to the listener a view of "after the storm" - quite, but a deep and charged situation. Voices of individuals appear and slowly become one united voice, "Calmo sempre e lontano" that is uncertain about the future.

    When the voice fades away, new life emerges step by step - "Parlando Rubato". But, the "Capriccioso" of life, takes the listener to an even a worst situation. Finally, at the end, sound of a sad prayer for better times emerge - "grave quasi calmo meditative".
